Summit Sunday! Congrats to WWH Ambassador @hanhandon on her recent winter ascent of Humphreys Peak, the highest point of the state of Arizona! Here is some additional info on Humphreys Peak and all about making it to the summit in the snow, from @hanhandon: “Humphreys Peak. [Hopi: Aaloosaktukwi, Navajo: Dookʼoʼoosłííd] The San Francisco Peaks are often referred to as a mountain range but actually they are the exploded remains of a large Stratovolcano that once towered over the Colorado Plateau. Not only is Humphreys Peak Arizona’s highest point, it is also the highest dormant volcanic peak. The top of the the peak is bare but on the way up you are amongst thousands of acres of Engelmann spruce, corkbark firs, ponderosa pines and aspens. Hiking it the snow this year was a first for me. It was a challenge but I was in great company and I loved the experience! Also got to brush up on my map reading skills. The hike gets steep and the elevation can be a challenge. I highly recommend doing extra research before heading up in any season! The most important rule of hiking any mountain is: making it down is more important than making it up!” at Humphreys Peak

#aapiheritagemonth @inheadlights is the creator behind the @fortheloveofclimbing podcast. For the Love of Climbing takes a deep dive into the people in the climbing community and opens the discussion on the trials and tribulations that many of us face. While it describes itself as “not a climbing podcast”, climbing is the common thread that runs through every episode. Also, shouts to @inheadlights for being the first non-bouldering photo on this page! Really paving the way here. #Repost @inheadlights (@get_repost) ・・・ Life has a way of pulling us in new directions when we least expect it. We can plan to climb, strategize and plot things out, pitch by pitch. But life…is not for planning. 📷 @agjohnsphotography #fortheloveofclimbing

Attention filmmakers and film enthusiasts! We are nearing the end of our submission period for our 2019/2020 film program! While we have found heaps gold, we are looking for more films that are provocative, differentiated, bold, beautiful and surprising that celebrate woman-identified athletes and creatives and actively undefinine feminine. We want films that resonate with and speak to all women. If you are not a filmmaker and have seen a film that features an individual who is not a cis, straight, white woman, please send this media our way. While we are constantly exploring the corners of the internet, sometimes we still struggle to find films that truly showcase YOU. We love you NMLFF fam and can't wait to share with you our new film line-up. More details on our Film Freeway.

Part one of the day was completed and it made the most sense to go to Mount Rushmore. I was under the impression that as humongous as the monument might be, it is not an all day affair and we could get everything we needed to accomplish in a few hours. . Along the way, we saw wild sites of spindle trees and roads that cut through rock. Highway 244 takes traffic towards Mount Rushmore where you can see the presidents from outside of the entrance. There they are. Washington, Jefferson, Roosevelt and Lincoln, staring square at you as drive up the road. . While we drove around, they would come in and out of view until we parked at the top of the parking garage. Admittance to the park is free. Park guests are only responsible for paying for parking at a nominal fee. Once we parked, Thomas got out and checked out the perimeter of the parking lot and took pictures of the landscape in the distance. . He may have been the only person there who came to Mount Rushmore to take pictures of all the stuff near it. Either way, I know they were going to be his usual amazeballs shots. . . #southdakota #mountrushmore #findyourpark #everyonebuttwo #diversitymatters #diversifyoutdoors #diversitynadventure #everytrailconnects #explore #exploremore #blackoutdoors #outdoorafro #ColorOutside #weoutchea #takemoreadventures #theadventuregap #usa #roadtrippers #roadtripusa #exploreamerica #thislandisourland #travelgram #rvlife #GoRVing #allwhowanderarenotlost #getlost #findingyourroots #retrace #nps #blacklove at Mount Rushmore National Memorial

Hey, Wildflowers! Raise your hand if you've ever gotten wildflower high! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ We're pretty sure it's happened to us sniffing roses at @Portlandrosegarden during the Rose Festival and at @purplehazelavender during the Lavender Festival. We both recall getting a little light headed and giggly. However, when we looked it up research proves nonconclusive on the topic. Maybe, it was just the repeated action of deep inhales combined with beautiful weather. There's a Rhododendron Festival near us this weekend. We'll just continue chasing wildflowers and testing out our theory over here. Keep you posted! 😉⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #wildflowers #lavender #lavenderfields #lavenderfestival #washingtonexplored #wanderwashington #purplehazelavender #sequimwashington #visitsunnysequim #americasprovence #lavendercapitalusa #vegantravel #pnwlife #pnwonderland #ontheoylmpicpeninsula #optoutside #creativetravelcouples #travelnoire #essencetravel #weworktotravel #soultravel #wegotoo #curlycommunity #curlycouple #blackoutdoors #diversifyoutdoors #bgwb #thegreenbook #theartofslowliving #slowtravel at Purple Haze Lavender

Well, let’s see how today goes. River is doing its thing, the clarity from the run off, makes it challenging. That’s one thing about fishing that makes it interesting. Trying to figure things out & when you are successful, and land a fish. That’s the reward of doing your homework. @gibbsdelta G-Force spoon in No Bananas patten with double glow, one of my favourites for water conditions that are less favourable for clarity, and when trolling deep. #wefishhere #gibbsdelta #islanderreels #scottyproducts #fishwithprecision #fish #brownfolksfishing #bff #diversifyoutdoors #explore #gforcespoon #nobananas #dailypost #columbiariver #adventure at Revelstoke, British Columbia

When Climbing Mental Mountains Becomes Literal - my new essay on the @curvykilicrew, the group of twenty plus-size women to hike Kilimanjaro in Africa, is live on @autostraddle NOW! Link in my “stories”, “highlights” and profile! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Writing this piece was its own adventure. It’s the first profile I’ve ever done and it’s the longest thing I’ve ever published. I had so much material I couldn’t use due to length, which was TORTURE. Truly, their story deserves a book with in-depth profiles of all twenty fascinating members. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is with complete sincerity when I say the @curvykilicrew are the reason I am hiking to Machu Picchu on the Salkantay Trail in Peru in July. For a number of reasons, I had never thought about world travel and definitely not thought about embarking on a multi-day outdoor adventure in another country with near strangers. My perspective on this has completely changed and I’ve never been more excited about an adventure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fatandoutdoorsy #mybodytookmehere #unlikelyhikers #WHOAtravel #WHOAplus #curvykilicrew #outsidersissue

From bills to bullies, life was hard for my family after we moved to this country. But when we went outdoors, painful America faded away into joyful America. When we went camping, my parents weren’t stressed out working two jobs each; they were funny and adventurous. Out there, I didn’t have to worry about bad grades or playground fights, I learned about building a fire and setting up a tent. The outdoors is healing and empowering and loving. I wish this reprieve for all immigrant families. Please know that this is your country, from streets to trails. Love it, protect it, fight for it. It gave me so much strength and I wish this for you too. . . 📍Ancestral land of the Panunkey, Piscataway, and other #Native tribes . . . Will you help diversify our public lands?

The still waters of Lake Quinault. With only one day planned to explore Olympic National Park, we rolled out of bed early, leaving our cozy AirBnB in Port Angeles for the misty morning drive into the park. As soon as we stepped into the Quinault Rainforest, you could almost hear the earth breathing as the water drops meandered down curtains of hanging moss, and the soil seemed to move, teeming with bugs and roots just below the surface. We only saw one other person that morning, but there was no doubt that life truly surrounded us. . . . . #landscape #olympicnationalpark #adventure #outdoors #livethelittlethings #communityovercompetition #risingtidesociety #raleighartist #artistsofinstagram #travelwithme #digitalnomad #traveller #womenwhohike #simplethingsmadebeautiful #theartofslowliving #optoutside #girlswhohike #outdoorwoman #outdoorasian #washingtonstate #pnwonderland #pnw #shetravels #livebravely #forest #nature #earthpix #findyourpark #diversifyoutdoors #wanderlust at Olympic National Park

I’m so grateful for y’all support lately and your patience as I work on a bunch of secret stuff I cant quite share yet.

An excerpt from a post I wrote about my sister LA on @wanderwyld ➡︎“It’s easy to focus on our personal struggles, but try to imagine how frustrating it must feel to NOT have a voice, to have to wait for people to pay attention to you, for most people to overlook you and dismiss you as if you are less than. That is the life that my sister mostly lives and I hope by sharing some insight into her life, it will help inspire you to be more accepting of those that you don’t understand. It’s okay to not know how to act, but it takes nothing from you to take the time to listen and be kind to someone different than yourself.” ➡︎ Go to my last post on @wanderwyld to see the full write up + learn more about my sister LA @la_love_york1982 .... ⚠️ it’s a lot! Also THANK YOU so much to everyone that’s already read the post and shared their kind messages + those taking the time to read now 💗 • 📷▸Want to acknowledge we were wandering the traditional territory of The Catawba Indian Nation ▸ ‪Landsford Canal State Park part of the Carolina Thread Trail ‬@threadtrail ▸ 2.45 miles ▸ 10.14.18 at Landsford Canal State Park

It’s fresh gear Friday and this one is a personal favorite. • MADE RIGHT HERE in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn Shirley's Balm is handmade by... (yep you guessed it) Shirley herself. Made with your outdoor activity in mind (climber hands included) this hand balm is meant to keep your hands moisturized, protected and crack free. It comes in a variety of great smelling balms like Lavender and Tea Tree. • Shirley’s aim is to make an affordable, natural product in an environmental and socially responsible way which is an achievement all in itself. If that wasn’t enough a portion of the proceeds goes towards charities (currently, towards global education). Love it! • So where can you find this super local handmade product? • It’s currently being sold in two locations in Bushwick, Brooklyn. @precyclenyc and @metrorockbrooklyn • Big thanks to @shirleysbalm for sharing her awesome story and for making Brooklyn just a bit more awesome. • Shirley is looking to expand online, in stores and tabling opportunities so reach out and support a fellow New Yorker! at Bensonhurst, Brooklyn
